The Dewey Estate of 1917 is one of the first and few remaining Pasadena homes built overlooking the Arroyo Seco prior to the Rose Bowl. This Colonial Revival reflects the renowned Foss Designing & Building Company’s architectural style for the finest homes “to delight the eye and be a joy forever.” The Dewey Estate has been meticulously cared for and updated for contemporary living from the handsome columns flanking the front door to the expansive rear veranda with columns and French doors to the living room.The nearly 2 acre property is truly magical and was included on the survey of Historic Designed Gardens as a work by noted landscape architect Ruth Shellhorn, designer of Disneyland’s Main Street. Later landscape architect Denis Kurutz, creator of the gardens for the original Getty Villa Museum, designed the home’s current landscaping and followed Shellhorn’s original layout for his addition of the Bouquet Canyon stone gated circle drive, front yard and pool area. This historic home has an impressive foyer, formal dining room, library, modern gourmet kitchen, sun-filled breakfast area, butler’s pantry, family room, craft room/artist studio, separate office, high ceilings, three stairways and a master suite spanning the width of the house with a fireplace and doors to the balcony. Manicured walking trails lead to the area of the original tack house and corral from which the Deweys rode horses in the Arroyo. This is a magnificent historically distinguished and stately home.
